A FIRST Ulster title success for Tyrone in six years will undoubtedly top the list of highlights for GAA followers in the county when they reflect on the 2016 season.
The big win at Clones in July ensured a great sense of satisfaction from a year that also saw the Red Hand county capture the National League Division Two title and a record fifth consecutive McKenna Cup.
While the aspirations towards All-Ireland glory were dashed against Mayo in the All-Ireland Quarter Final, make no mistake that Tyrone will be back challenging at the top level in 2017 and beyond.
Of course, those Tyrone senior football triumphs aren’t the only fond memories that we will take from the year that has passed.
Your club may have won a league or championship title in football, hurling, ladies football or camogie. For others, it may have been a county, provincial or national triumph in Scor, Scor Na nOg or handball.
This has been another hectic year for gaelic games and culture within Tyrone, and has again reflected the crucial role played by the Association in each of our communities.
Here at the North-West Newsgroup, we are pleased to bring you this year’s Tyrone GAA Yearbook.
On a weekly basis, our reporters and photographers have once again been out chronicling the full range of Tyrone GAA activities for the Ulster Herald, the Strabane Chronicle and the Tyrone Herald.
We are immensely proud to now have brought all the highlights together in a publication which we are sure will be enjoyed by all.
Thanks are extended to all those involved in so many ways in producing this yearbook – the second under the auspices of the North-West Newsgroup.
It’s a publication which we hope will bring back many happy memories of the 2016 season at club and inter-county level – whatever your personal highlight.
